Boys Basketball Suffers Tough Loss
SU basketball players Kris Joseph and Rakeem Christmas address LHS students.
Friday night the Liverpool Boys Varsity Basketball team was on the road to play section rival West Genny, in hopes of recording their first win of the season.
The Warriors came right out of the gate gaining an early lead against the Wildcats, despite ending the first quarter down fifteen to fourteen.
Off to a slow start in the second quarter, the Warriors only recorded seven points in the second quarter, heading into the locker room losing 30-21.
Fans could here Coach Wilcox’s anger in his voice when talking to his team during half time as they waited in line at the concession stand.
Exiting the locker room players looked as if they had seen a ghost, in reaction to Wilcox’s response after their poor first half performance.
Wilcox’s halftime speech proved to be effective when the Warriors came out on fire, receiving good point guard play from junior point guard, Mike Russo and sophomore big man Caleb Taylor.
The Wildcats size and strength proved to be overwhelming for the Warriors after the Wildcats took a commanding lead going into the fourth quarter.
The Warriors fought hard in the fourth quarter, but the Wildcats size advantage proved to be too much to handle for the Warriors, suffering a 58-69 defeat.
The Warriors look to rebound after their disappointing loss and 0-2 start to the season, hoping they can pull off a win against upcoming opponent, Fayetteville Manlius.
